The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Carolina Panthers Sunday night on the road and the first official injury report of the week is now out following Wednesday’s practice.
DNP: Keisel, Miller, Polamalu (not injury related for all 3) LIMITED: Archer, Foster FULL: Bryant, McLendon, Moore

Not practicing Wednesday were defensive end Brett Keisel (not injury related), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related) and safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related) as all three were apparently given a veteran maintenance day.
Limited on Wednesday were running back Dri Archer (ankle) and guard Ramon Foster (ankle). With Archer being a rookie, there’s a good chance he will miss a second straight game this week unless he’s able to practice fully on both Thursday and Friday.
Practicing fully on Wednesday were nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), wide receiver Lance Moore (groin) and wide receiver Martavis Bryant (shoulder).
Baring a setback, McLendon looks like he will be able to overcome the shoulder subluxation injury that forced him to leave the Thursday night game against the Baltimore Ravens early.
As for Bryant, the Steelers fourth-round draft pick, he has been inactive for the first two games of the 2014 season after suffering a shoulder injury early in the preseason finale against the Panthers.
With Moore now back practicing fully, it looks likely that he will make his Steelers debut Sunday night after missing the first two games with a groin injury.
